Maverick has responded extremely well to his first training session. We already have a far better behaved and well mannered puppy and it's amazing to watch. I really appreciate the strategies and resources/equipment offered by Glenn. He was very realistic, and gentle while being straightforward with informing us of the thought process involved with owning a dog. Glenn was very patient with teaching my children as well. It was a holistic approach, both with Maverick and with my family. I cannot recommend Bark Busters enough!
An eye opening experience truly. I didn’t realise the right training would have corrected so many behavioural issues within 20 minutes. As much as I hate to admit it but had I been wiser to have contacted barkbusters sooner I wouldn’t have wasted so much money, time and energy going around in circles training my dog.
Thankyou so much for the informative lesson Glen! You have helped so much and put my mind at ease! We have been having dominance issues with our border collie for about three years now and nothing has helped. Glen was able to tell me why we were having these issues and how to fix them. It’s only been a day but have already noticed a massive improvement. I look forward to the rest of our training :)
I can’t recommend Maureen enough, 6 weeks ago she came to help us with Max a 1yo amstaff. We were having trouble with Max digging, lunging and jumping at doors and pulling on the lead. After 1 visit from Maureen we could see a massive difference in his behaviour, the techniques we learned really do work and now we have a very well mannered dog. Thanks Maureen!
We have a beautiful 8 month old Italian Greyhound who needed some puppy training and behavioural management. In particular, she was jumping a lot for attention and very difficult on the lead. We contacted Bark Busters and Maureen has expertly taught us a few simple tools and skills to address these specific problems. The valuable lesson we have learned is that we are the ‘leaders of the pack’ and Frida must respect that. Consistently using these tools coupled with lots of praise and cuddles is flowing on to her general behaviour. Maureen is very knowledgeable and her teaching is precise and clear. We are definitely on the right track now!
Wow! My husband didn’t expect overnight results but I was very hopeful, and Glen (Bark Busters) has surely delivered. Today rather than contemplating rehoming our pooch (it’s been a challenging year with our first baby and a misbehaving cavoodle); I’m now instead joking about renaming him because Teddy is like a different dog. All of the challenging behaviours that were affecting our relationship are gone. During our 1st session with Glen, we learnt lots and observed the transformation commence immediately. We’re excited to continue with this new training and strategies. Teddy and I are enjoying a nice, relaxing day at home together today. And we haven’t had this level of calm in our home since August 2018!!! Thank you Glen for all of your help! We are so grateful and pleased to see such a change in Ted. He seems happier, more content and relaxed as well. Happy wife, happy life - happy home.
My grown children said this isn’t jack you broke the dog because he was so calm and different to usual and this was later on the day Glen came.
Glen was exceptionally good, taught us the material well, lots of hands on training. We’re already getting so much benefit from the training/intervention. It’s like we have a whole new dog - no barking, jumping, dominating, whining - all resolved!
Very happy. A different dog within hours. So amazing. A week later and we are still going so well.
Our dog Luna is an almost 1 year old staffy/kelpie cross and over 30kg. We had major issues with her barking at EVERYTHING nonstop, we were getting complaints from the neighbours and she was driving us crazy. It was also frustrating to walk her as she would pull so hard on the lead constantly, our children were unable to take her for walks. She was ruling our household and treat based weekly training was getting us nowhere, we were on the brink of having to decide whether we could keep her. After making a desperate call to Bark Busters we were lucky enough to have Maureen come and visit us. Maureen spent the afternoon helping us to understand Luna's behaviour and why she was doing the things she was doing and showed us what to do. It was not easy to change our behaviour but in doing so it changed Luna's behaviour almost immediately. Maureen was extremely patient with us and listened to all of our concerns and addressed each of them in our first visit. We did our homework and continue to do so and are seeing improvements every day. Both of the neighbours that complained have complemented us on how well behaved Luna is now and that they are surprised at the difference in such a short time. Our children who are 14 and 7 are both now able to walk her on their own without her pulling them over. It's also a comfort knowing that Maureen is available at any time should we have questions or concerns.
OMG. What on earth just happened?! We had Maureen in to help us with our pooches on a Saturday morning and by Saturday evening we had 2 completely different dogs. We had a dinner party that night and instead of barking, begging and annoying everyone all night, they were calm and quiet. Angels in fact. Weeks later they are even better. The training helps EVERYTHING. Love Maureen and the Barkbusters system. The support is fantastic. Jimmy and Bel
Looks so easy. Can’t wait to perfect these simple and super effective techniques.
Thankyou so much Glen for helping with my 3 year old kelpie max , I learned so much , can't wait to put into practice
Great lesson. Results were noticeable immediately. Can't wait for next lesson.
Very helpful, there was so much change after the session and will be recommending to others
Maureen was a excellent trainer for our new puppy. She showed us all the techniques to help him along the way. Would recommend Maureen for anybody wanting a trainer with a lot of experience and knowledge.
Maureen was an excellent help for our family with our ridgeback X Rescue dog Leo❤.The response was amazing we saw results in the first session. We are now confident to walk him on a loose lead with out pulling❤. Our experience with Bark Busters was totally worth it, we can't recommend them enough. Thank you Maureen for all your help?
After a successful initial lesson with Maureen, my husband and I have commenced a journey that we are confident will result in a happy and well adjusted dog. Our puppy Ella needs some help in learning what we expect of her. Ella is always confident in the knowledge that we love her and we look forward to learning how to be the best owners we can be. We are confident that Maureen's knowledge and expertise will enable us to achieve our goal. Thank you Maureen, we look forward to a long and successful association with you and Bark Busters.
Maureen was absolutely amazing. Friendly, professional and very understanding. She was knowledgeable and we found it very easy to follow the training. We were so impressed at how fast our little puppy Simba connected with the training. We can't thank Maureen enough and I/we were extremely comfortable and relaxed with her coming into our home. Thank you Bark Busters, the training has helped us enormously. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.
Fantastic first training session with Glen. Couldn't believe how well our two dogs responded to his methods. Wish we had done this ages ago, so pleased.
Noticed a change in our dog in the first session with Glen. he really helped understand our dog
I was very impressed and it is working
Wow! Such a fabulous lesson for us. It started when I answered the door with Both boys were stunned, learning to walk on the training collar/lead & heeling, using the command then praising them. Took them both for a walk (on their new collar & lead) after Maureen left, only had to use the command once they even sat whilst I spoke to my neighbour, so proud of them both. I cannot praise the excellent training enough. Maureen Guelfi positive words of encouragement & communication was superb & I would highly recommend her to anyone having any issues.
One word - amazing. Maureen was absolutely awesome with a wealth of knowledge and experience however was able to ensure specific training and guidance for our 2 Sharpeis. The entire experience was so well facilitated and we look forward to building a strong training relationship with Maureen. Have to say how awesome it was to see immediate improvement from our first session .
Thanks Maureen for our training session, I can’t believe the changes in one session. Really excited to continue your great work and seeing the changes in my pup.
Maureen was a very passionate trainer. Immediate results and highly recommend her to anyone with dog behavioural issues. Thank you again
The information received was very helpful, Knowing that my two staffy’s are trainable and won’ have many issues. Thank you Glen the information was well received.
Glen is an amazing trainer who listened to every question and concern that we had, and immediately had an answer or way of fixing our problems. He took the time out to get to know our dogs, and within the hour he had them walking nicely on the lead next to us. Glen is very knowledgeable and we wish we had organised this training sooner! I highly recommend Bark Busters and Glen. A great experience for us, and our dogs have greatly benefited from it.
Maureen was very good n I quiet happy as yushi had change from the next day
From the moment Maureen stepped foot into my house she had my dog Leo right under control and by the time Maureen left Leo was so well behaved. The techniques that was shown to me have been of a great help and they are certainly working. With Time, love and patience I know I will have a beautifully well behaved dog. I highly recommend Barkbusters to train your dog it is well worth the money
We are absolutely amazed by the change In jagger after 1 two hour session with Glen. He is now walking perfectly on the lead, waits to exit and enter doors and has stopped jumping up. Everyone at the dog park is stunned with his transformation! Thanks Glen
Now I will start by saying that I was proven wrong. (in a good way) When I was told over the phone that most of Milo's issues would be addressed and resolved within 1 session with Bark Busters (Glen) I kind of wanted to just get the training to see how wrong they were. Well, Glen was simply amazing and did exactly what they said would happen. It was almost as if we had a brand new dog with the same loving nature and playfulness yet a calmer and more aware dog. For those out there that think that training your dog and telling them off is a bad thing (this was me) then we were wrong. It is so good for Milo to have direction and boundaries in his life and he is so much happier. Glen & Bark Busters we would happily recommend you to anyone who is seeking a dog trainer and my wife and I appreciate all the amazing insight you gave us.
We weren't really sure what to expect out of the session as we were trying and failing for a while to get our dogs behaviour under control. However, as soon as Glen came over and had his first interaction with our dogs their demeanour changed for the better. Glen then proceeded to teach us how to properly interact with our dogs and explained the training we should do with them. It has been nearly a week and the dogs are very happy following our lead and stopped quarrelling and instead started playing with each other again. We are very grateful to barkbusters to have our household peace back.
Maureen has been excellent with helping us train our 3 year old dog and teach us training drills that we can use for life. His behaviour within the first month Has been noticeably a lot better. He has been a lot calmer and a lot more obedient towards us. We would recommend bark busters to anyone who may be experiencing issues with their dog.
Amazing Maureen trained our beautiful fur children Pomeranians and two grown human adults. Cannot thank you enough for the knowledge you have given us and cannot recommend you any more than what I certainly will be going forward. Do yourself a favour and book in, it is the best money we have ever spent and with an amazing trainer you won’t regret it. Thank you so much again Maureen for your support and guidance we really do appreciate it and the stress that has been taken away is beyond belief.
Glenn was super clear and effecting at teaching us how to better control Virginia
I have just come back from a walk , hours after my first training session with Glen, and I could just cry! The first time that my arm wasn't pulled out of its socket! There will be lots more hard work , but Heidi and I will get there with Glens expert help! Thank you so much!!
Glen is incredible. How he talks to owners is so easy, has a laugh and speaks to us as adults in a non-condescending manner. He doesn’t come across as being better than us and if we used a practice or act that wasn’t the best option, he gave us valid reasons for what we could use which would be more effective. Our dogs, in 60 minutes of solid training were just exceptional and new dogs. We couldn’t believe it, had to double takes numerous times. We now have new practices that we can use and are looking forward to the next month of work and having really calm dogs. I cannot speak highly enough of the human being that Glen is. We enjoyed his company so much, he’s so knowledgeable and easy to relate to and Glen alone is the reason I would recommend Bark Busters, let alone all the incredible tips he’s taught us, and that’s the trick, teaching humans ? Until next time.
2 year old black lab who recently joined the family. Anxiety issues towards other dogs manifested with aggression
Glen explained and demonstrated some great techniques and simple knowledge to help us combat Hodgey's dog aggression. So far so good, with Hodgey responding very well to training exercises.
I have never seen training work so fast before! Glen explained everything in great detail and when showing the Bark Buster techniques my two German Shorthaired Pointers responded really well. I am looking forward to continuing our training with Glen.
Glen was an excellent educator - he explained the concepts well and was great with our golden retriever Archie. I simply cannot believe how well this method works for Archie - I can’t understand how something so simple can work SO well!! I wish we tried this method a long time ago, we are in awe!
Maureen was amazing. She knew exactly what the issues were with our dog and how to address these. We followed her plan and saw results very quickly. Definitely recommend Maureen and the Bark Busters team.
Very knowledgeable instruction that had an immediate effect on our dog. Thoroughly recommend.
Only one session in and you can see the change in behaviour. Having a large dog with 3 guard breeds in him, my dog was hard to control and unpredictable. Glen was amazing, he explained what was happening and why, and gave me all the tools to have a model citizen. I have no doubt that with a little effort on my part we will get there in no time! Thanks for giving me faith and hope!
I had a great time learning how to train and lead Cosmo. The training was as much for myself as it was for Cosmo :)
Fantastic. Fixed our problems instantly and we now know how to maintain it. Thankyoy
Maureen was absolutely fantastic with our 9 month old border collie. I couldn't believe how quickly Chevy responded to the training and we now have the tools to continue with the training and Chevy is doing really well. I wish we had contacted Bark Busters sooner.
Positive experience. Glen provides background and logic behind training techniques and easy to follow steps for ongoing training.
Maureen has been absolutely excellent to work with! Going into this we thought we were totally alone in all of our problems but Maureen has shown us otherwise. Many people have been through what we're going through and there's always a way to solve it! Thanks Maureen!
Maureen took the time to understand all the behaviours and situations we wanted to address with our dog. She walked through what we needed to do in each situation with simple clear instructions. Maureen also allowed me to practice the one step training under her guidance so that it was clear in my mind what I needed to do. The folder provided good information and her advice around changing my dogs diet has been invaluable. Mocha has been a much calmer well behaved dog after just 10 days of training.
Glen was fantastic with Margo. Within minutes he had her pulling under control. You can see he genuinely loves dogs and I felt immediately comfortable with him as a trainer. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
We were extremely impressed. It was like Moose was a complete different dog. I wish I contacted Bark Busters sooner. Very simple and easy to learn. The training is something we can do every day with ease. Glen was amazing. I highly recommend him. Moose responded so easily and we look forward to continuing his training. The cost is well worth it. It's lifetime.
Glen came out to meet our dogs and was great. Made sure that I understood everything he was doing and why he was doing it. Had my dog Scout responding so quickly. Can't wait to get training!
Glen,s knowledge and hands on approach complimented and enhanced what I was already doing with faster results. I feel that all of the training tips offered will be easily applied in Glens absence for a better than he already is dog and am glad that we decided to work on these things now rather than later. I love the training tools that come with the sessions.
Most amazing thing I have ever witnessed. Glen was born to do this kind of work. I never in my life would have guessed how quickly he could relate to my Zeus and how well he could tap into his psyche. I had no idea what to expect but honestly could not have been more impressed, valued and happy with Bark Busters service. Glen is a genius when it comes to dogs and I really thought Zeus would give him a run for his money but not even close. Glen is compassionate and gentle but simultaneously firm and it gets results. I am one to baby my dog and he taught me how to really help my dog and make him happy. So thankful!
Before training Mila with Bark Busters she was slightly aggressive towards people and dogs, pulled on the lead and needed some general training. I was always anxious to take her out for a walk, to the park, not knowing how she was going to react towards people and other dogs. But with only 2 sessions with Bark Busters I am so amazed with Mila's progress. I can take her for a walk and be on the same side of the footpath with a dog and a person now, where before I wouldn't be able to be on the other side of the road without getting a reaction. I now can take Mila for a walk without having to worry about anyone else being around. I can take her to the park and Mila will come back when called and walk by my side even if she is off the leash. I can not wait to see what else Mila can do and more of her progress. I am so thankful for Maureen, helping me out so much, answering any question I had and being a phone call away if needed.
I couldn't believe within the first 5 seconds of meeting Maureen my dog was already listening to her and not taking his eyes off of her just waiting to see what to do next!!!! I can't wait for a revisit to see how we are going!!!
Loved it and the dogs responded really well
Maureen was so great at helping train my 9 month old Pomeranian she taught me so much about what I can do as well in just one session
Absolutely brilliant! Glen has a lovely calm nature and is very knowledgeable about the canine world
This is the second dog Glen has helped us with. The time we spend with Glen focuses on the dogs but also towards how we conduct ourselves better as the master, probably the hardest part of the training is teaching us. We feel happy to discuss with him what we do right but also more importantly what we are doing wrong with no judgement, he is supportive whilst correcting our mistakes.
It was absolutely phenomenal. Glen put us at ease and did not make us feel like bad dog parents which previous trainers have, he simply showed us how to live going forward in a positive way. We have been through various types of trainers before but this is the first one that has worked. He was amazing at talking us through everything and being so patient. My husband and I absolutely saw a difference in the first session. He has changed our lives and helped our furbabies to create a well structured and happy family. Thank you!
Glen was great! Bark Busters is an incredible and totally worthwhile service! Totally transformative. Noticeable difference in dogs' behaviour within 20 minutes. Glen was super knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He educated us on dog psychology, and then we did some great hands on exercises to train our dogs. Great experience! Will be getting bark busters in for every dog I have in the future. Pebbles' behaviour is still improving. There has been an incredible improvement in Pebbles behaviour with the following: - Chasing and nipping other dogs - Obsessively chasing lights and insects - Obsessively licking her paws - Obsessively eating grass - Destructive behaviour - Walking on a lead
Maureen was great. We had issues we really weren't sure how to address and she's helped us heaps!
Training went very well and our dog Mia responded very well to the training. Glen did a very good job in showing us how to be the leader and didn't just train Mia but trained us as well.
Had the first training session with Glen, his experience with dogs show. Feeling very happy with the results after just one day, our dog is more respectful and well behaved already. Looking forward to see our dog continue to change for the better, can't wait for group classes. Thank you Glen!!
Very clear plan to get Mischa to be more relaxed and also learn better techniques for obedience
Excellent, great advice and really friendly
Glen was phenomenal. Treated our puppy Delilah beautifully, took his time helping us understand & gave us all the tools we need to have a wonderfully mannered dog.
We booked an appointed with Maureen as our two dogs were barking incessantly when my husband and I were at work. We wanted to sort this out as it was starting to bother our neighbours. Not knowing exactly what was causing the barking I was skeptical about how some specific lead work and a change of diet could fix the problem; however, two weeks later, after doing the prescribed exercises and the change in diet, their barking has improved dramatically! It has eased so much stress for our family. Maureen was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.
Changed dog! So much more responsive to commands, eating better, acting so good. Really easy to understand what to do and Glen showed us well too. Really easy to get along with Glen and we enjoyed his helpful visits.
Glen was excellent. We have newfound confidence in addressing behaviours with our dog. We look forward to practicing them knowing we have support available as needed.
OMG Glen arrive at my home and with-in an hour I had a different fur baby. Lizzy is my best friend and I hated having to do the things Glen said, but Friday and Saturday I'm so much more relaxed and so is my Lizzy. She actually listens to me and doesn't bark commands as she used to. Glen is amazing and all the gifts I received was a surprise but very much appreciated, I have learnt so much even though I have trained my own shepherds many years ago. I am so looking forward to Glenn coming back and seeing the difference in her. please let me explain the value for money question down the bottom the reason I gave you three stars it was a shock to know that it was that amount of money when you only have one income $600 is a lot for a lot of people to find on the first instance but I'm glad I did. the know in the comment did I learn everything I needed to learn the reason for the no as I need to learn the recall which I'm hoping will come in time and I'm so looking forward to the outing the second Mondays of each month. Thank you Glenn you're amazing.
Could see an instant improvement in both dogs in the first few minutes of Glenn being with us! Gave us a greater understanding of how to teach our dogs. Can not wait to see how they are in a few weeks time :)
Absolutely amazing. Couldn't believe how quickly our dogs responded to the training, and they continued the improved behaviour after Glen left. Didn't think our dogs would react so positively to the training methods, and have never seen them this calm. One of our dogs attacked the other and started a very bad fight which is what prompted up to go to BarkBusters. We seperated them until the morning of the first training, took them for a walk and our dog snapped again. During the lesson, our dogs were reintroduced to each other and had no problems. They even ended up falling asleep next to each other that night, which I thought would have been impossible
It has worked really well. Their obedience has improved dramatically and their anxiety has also improved.
I found Glen to be very lovely and friendly. I was impressed with his interaction with our dog and would highly recommend Glen to other people.
Maureen has been wonderful. She is such a natural and understands my four legged friend and how his little mind operates. Saw progress after the 1st session and as she has said many times to me "consistency is key". Thanks Maureen :)
Awesome first training session. We have a better understanding of our dog and how to best communicate what we want from him. Really loved Glen and his attitude towards training and what was even better was we got to see him use the training and how instantly our dog reacted to it. Very impressed.
I was amazed at how quickly Glen had Tilly doing what he wanted. She followed beautifully on the lead without pulling. I've continued the training with great success. We've even gone out into the front yard where she has been a star pupil. Thanks Glen. I am constantly amazed at the difference in my little girl!
Glenn was great very very knowledgeable and great with our 2 boys gunner an Hunter and very patient with myself an my wife
Glen came today and ran us through the idea of the program. He spoke about everything Bella needs to be happy. Glen showed us how to use our three tones of voice and then got us to do it. He then showed us how to do a new technique with the lead and collar he supplied. Overall Bella is on her way to a much better and well behaved future We look forward to working with Glen again at our next appt
I was amazed in the transformation in such a short time. Almost immediately she was doing everything Glen asked of her. It will take me longer to grasp the commands than it did for her to learn them.
Very happy that the trainer had answers for all my questions and good ideas for follow through. We could see progress being made before our eyes.
My girlfriend and I were very pleased with Glen's training. Vader responded very quickly to the techniques we were taught and was as if he was a different dog from the moment Glen walked in our house. Glen took his time, was patient and explained things well. Highly recommend.
Glen was fantastic, explained all the basic dog needs and gave us many helpful hints. The on lead training was invaluable and we have seen results immediately.
Awesome my dogs behaviour has changed completely.
The training was remarkable. Our pup is only 6 months, but don't let his age fool you! He is smart, cheeky, intelligent and sneaky, but his personality is one of a kind. Glen came in and immediately Pluto's vibe changed - he knew who was in charge, Glen is friendly, so beyond knowledgeable and has really helped being sanity back into our house hold. He corrected the things we were not doing quite right, and encouraging us for the things we tried to get right. He had taught me and partner so much and we've still got so much more to learn. What's really made me feel good inside is sometimes you see dogs get trained and things change and they start to lose who they are a little bit. But Glen manages to teach you and build your skills and allows your dog to have his/her own personality, i have seen this with multiple dogs he has trained it's amazing!! We have been referred to by friends/family members of ours. I am really looking forward to our new puppy training with Pluto, and seeing all the progress we continue to make with the help of bark busters. You have really really made having a first time puppy be so easy!! Thank you so much.
Wow. What an incredible difference Glen has made. After a single session, he had identified how we were confusing our dog with our words and body language. By implementing Glens training techniques, our once very boisterous and barking dog is now well behaved, quiet and polite. She has gone from dragging us along on the lead and lunging at other dogs to trotting at our heels and knowing that lunging at other dogs is not cool. We cannot thank you enough Glen, and we know our neighbours thank you too.
Glen is very knowledgeable and offered great advice and suggestions in trying different techniques to correct our puppies behaviours. I will definitely recommend to friends and also clients we have through my work at the Vet.
The training was transformative! Glen was friendly, helpful and very professional and above all made the desired outcomes seem very achievable . He explained all aspects of the program in very straightforward terms and enabled me to be the 'expert' with my own dog . I particularly liked his direct assessment of the issues and the way in which he directed me to be able to change my dogs behavioural 'problems' by actually changing mine! The program is very client centred and I cannot recommend the service highly enough
Me and Radley are so much happier after your (Maureen's) help and I am completely satisfied with the service. A lot of what Maureen said resonated with me - in that I understood how my puppy thought so I could train properly. I think I learned just as much as Radley. Life improved immensely after our first lesson. You guys are lifesavers.
Bindi and I had our first session today and Glen put us both at ease. Bindi responded really well to Glen and he took into account that she only had 3 legs. We look forward to continuing our training.
Was so pleased to see the instant improvement with our dogs. Didn't think it would be so successful after just 2 hours with Glen.
The guidance and advice delivered by Glen provided us with a new beginning to a happier time with our dog. A significant change was noted on the first day.
all went very well , looking forward to next lesson
